or better said somewhat english translation in progress...

I've been wanting to play the Shady Job mod for 2 years now, as the official translation will probably never make it, today I spent the best of my day using an online translator and ja2edt to translate the texts, sometimes the text is surprisingly to the point, sometimes it's complete rubbish with some russian words left in there but it's better than all russian...

Anyone interested to help me in this translation process so the progress is a bit faster? Anyone can help no knowledge of russian required. Smile
Just tell in this thread which files you will be doing and when finished send the files to peterdedecker[at]gmail.com

Anyway when interested to help these tools are used:
- Ja2Edt-prbeta downloadable from here: http://www.xs4all.nl/~jp7201/linx-ja2/ja2edt.html
- Free Translation Online webpage: http://translation2.paralink.com/

Files I have so far are downloadable from my webpage: http://www.ipbwiki.com/ja/ShadyJobTranslation.rar

after all i heard about that mod, i think that's a great idea, i don't know if i could help you as i have no programming experience, but i'll see what i can do, hope more members get in the project, as I'm sure many have knowledge of the Russian language,

:cheers:

you sure can help, the only tools you need are listed above, open ja2edt, copy the russian text into the free translation online page, press translate, copy the translated text back into ja2edt, repeat for all the texts, save. next file.

alright then, downloaded the editor and had it runnin',
'till i realized the simple fact that i have to download the mod first :crazy:
that'll take a good 4 or 5 hours, anyways if it's as simple as you say, then count me in :animread:

PS: never had the chance to play the mod actually, just re-installed the game and keepin' busy with the SOG'69

:wave:

Tried out Braindead's translation , errrmm , wouldn't advise using it , really confusing in the email section , though Aim mercs descriptions not too bad , a fine try anyway ! Roll on Inshy's , he da man :cheers:

Edit : The mod is fairly tough and unforgiving , pistols from elites early on will hit from waaaayyyy back , with devastating effect :maskedsniper:

How come three exe's ? You using Braindeads as a guide ? Even a guide for quests / emails would do , weapons/ammo/items are usually recognisable anyway , but whatever you think will help, thanks .

what OS do you use? I send to you usual *.doc file (MS Word 97), and after it i send to you usual TXT file! then i post all text to PM that you could copy it and make any text file what you want. I don't understand what the problem do you have.

try this exe for SJ. In some place i can't type full english text, becouse russian was smaller. So try to make some short and good variant for translated text.
